Have summer fun and care for your skin
Summertime is a challenging season for most people when it comes to skincare, as many of us prefer ‘fun in the sun.’ That doesn’t mean we should neglect our skin. While it’s true that some of the popular cosmetic rejuvenation treatments require that you stay out of the sun both before and after your treatment, it’s a myth that you cannot reap the benefits of quality and effective treatments in the summer. That’s why it’s important to pick treatments that fit with your summer plans and activities.
So, what cosmetic treatments can you easily have done during the summer? We’ve made a brief list of treatments that are summer-friendly and will keep you looking your best through the summer and into the fall.
Treat stubborn fat and smooth skin without losing out on all the summer fun – no downtime!
CoolSculpting has been available for over 8 years. Using cryolipolysis, fat cells are frozen and permanently removed to sculpt those stubborn areas we cannot lose with regular diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is perfect for that individual who is at or about 30 BMI and has those stubborn areas that just won’t budge. It can be performed literally from head to toe!
BTLAesthetics treatments, referred to as ‘Body by BTL’ consists of Vanquish ME, Exilis Ultra 360, Cellutone and Ultra Femme 360. By utilizing Radio Frequency heat and Ultrasound technology we can remove unwanted fat, smooth and firm skin and perform feminine rejuvenation treatments.
Vanquish ME is a complement to CoolSculpting as it uses radio frequency heat to kill fat cells. This treatment is not BMI specific and can debulk fat in the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs. Exilis Ultra 360 can smooth and firm from practically all areas of the body and the treatment feels like a hot stone massage. The Ultra Femme 360 procedure can correct incontinence and painful intercourse. Cellutone uses vibration to smooth cellulite temporarily to keep you swimsuit ready. All of the BTLAesthetics family of treatments are very comfortable and have absolutely no downtime! No one has time for downtime when we are enjoying summer fun!
Easy and Effective Medispa Facial Treatments!
Treatments such as the HydraFacial, Vibradermabrasion, customized facials and chemical peel alternatives, like PCA’s Oxygenating Treatment, can be safely performed during this time of year. These treatments all provide summer friendly exfoliation and help to boost your skin’s appearance, health and defenses.
The Hydrafacial will help to deeply cleanse, exfoliate, extract and infuse antioxidants such as Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C to hydrate, replenish lost nutrients and provide additional sun protection.
Vibradermabrasion will remove dry, sluggish skin from the skin’s surface without irritation to promote a more radiant and evenly textured skin. It will allow for better absorption of your daily skincare products and may be performed on various areas of the body.
Chemical peel alternatives like PCA’s Oxygenating Treatment are great for lightly exfoliating the skin without causing heavy peeling or irritation like a chemical peel. It also brightens the skin to reveal a more beautiful, refreshed complexion.
Customized facials can be tailored to target concerns such as dullness, dehydration, heat induced irritations and acne.
And remember that it’s always important to make sun protection a part of your daily routine to reduce your risk for both skin cancer and premature aging.
